Last FP7 Monitoring Report published
The European Commission has published its seventh and last FP7 Monitoring Report. The report provides an integrated view of the different strands of FP7 activities and also presents a comparative analysis of FP7 implementation during 2007- 2013. Furthermore, a new annex (F) has been added to the report providing key data and information on FP7 – in particular on participation – per country, notably on the EU Member States. During seven years of FP7, 487 concluded calls received nearly 136,000 proposals, involving more than 601,000 applicant organisations and individuals of which more than 25,000 proposals involving more than 130,000 participants were finally retained for negotiations. Proposals and applicants had an average success rate of 19% and 22% respectively.
The aggregate project cost of the retained proposals for the period 2007-2013 is € 62.9 billion, and the corresponding EU financial contribution requested is € 41.7 billion, with a corresponding average success rate of 19% in terms of EU financial contribution.
